The Karate Kid clip ‘Jacket On’ — 16 Comments

  1. I definitely felt that for about a year or so, but now that I have rewatched it several times, I feel like the remake definitely has a deeper message, better performance and structurally it is more sound. Everything that is planted early in the movie has a complete arc by the end.

  2. well the original is a movie of a bygone era, the 1980s. So yeah the nostalgia is a powerful factor for sticking by it. The villain, Sensei Kreese is a compelling villain, plus that was actually about Karate. Where here it is all about Kung Fu. Stll as a stand alone product, i can appreciate this movie!

  3. so the movie title says karate and the black kid in the movie says kung fu. hmmm.

  4. I agree. I definitely think this one is better, especially this scene. Jacket off is a lot cooler than wax on wax off

  5. Unfortunately this remake will never get all the credibility it deserves caus people are just fking blinded by nostalgia and think it’s apparently blasphemy to suggest that the new one’s better. The fact is, this remake blew the original completely out of the water, people just can’t accept that and are too obsessed with defending the original.

  6. Saying that Karate is better than Kung Fu is like saying that Jean Claude Van Damme is better than Bruce Lee.
    What is your problem, theres no “better techniqe” everybody can practice what they like and be strong if they train everyday, and thats how Dre is showing!

  7. No, “Xiao” is for Kung Fu students or any fighter in china.
    San id for japan fighters like Karate & Sumo.

  8. This scene is not nearly as good or memorable as scene it tries to copy from the original movie.
